Food Jokes

  • The Month after Christmas Parody'Twas the month after Christmas, and all through the house
    Nothing would fit me, not even a blouse.
    The cookies I'd nibbled, the eggnog I'd taste
    At the holiday parties had gone to my waist.
    When I got on the scales there arose such a number!
    When I walked to the store (less a walk than a lumber).

  • casseroleA young minister sitting down to dinner was about to say grace when he opened the casserole dish that his thrifty new bride had prepared from all of the refrigerator leftovers.

    "I don't know," he said dubiously, "but it seems to me that I've blessed all this stuff before."

  • cabbageMurphy’s Slaw: If cabbage can go rotten, it will.

  • chocolate chip cookiesChildren were lined up in the cafeteria of a Catholic school for lunch.

    At the head of the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note: "Take only one, God is watching."

    A boy wrote a note: "Take all you want, God is watching the apples."

  • chocolate1A good piece of chocolate has about 200 calories. As I enjoy 2 servings per night, and a few more on weekends. I consume 3,500 calories of chocolate in a week, which equals one pound of weight per week.


    In the last 3 1/2 years, I have had chocolate caloric intake of about 180 pounds, and I only weigh 135 pounds, so without chocolate, I would have wasted away to nothing about 3 months ago!

    I owe my life to chocolate.

  • sandwichesWhen the power failed at the elementary school, the cook couldn't serve a hot meal in the cafeteria, so at the last minute she whipped up great stacks of peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches.

  • ice cream2Martha's way #1: Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

    My way: Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone. For Pete's sake, you are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway.


    Martha's way #2: Use a meat baster to "squeeze" your pancake batter onto the hot griddle and you'll get perfectly shaped pancakes every time.

  • cookingMartha's way: If you accidentally over salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix me up"

    My way: If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's just too bad. My motto is, I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes.

    Martha's way: To easily remove burnt-on food from your skillet, simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on stove top.

  • milkThese notes left for milkmen came from the UK, so you'll notice a slight, endearing British ambiance to them.

    "Please leave an extra pint of paralyzed milk."

    "Cancel one pint after the day after today."

    "Please don't leave any more milk. All they do is drink it"

    "Milkman, please close the gate behind you because the birds keep pecking the tops off the milk."

  • olive oilTrying to control my dry hair, I treated my scalp with olive oil before washing it.

    Worried that the oil might leave an odor, I washed my hair several times.

    "No," he said, sniffing me.

  • A church membership potluck potato chip sermon illustrationMy friend Betty is in charge of hospitality for a church planted by her son-in-law. The church is in a college area and most of the members are recent college graduates.

    The first year the pastor offered membership classes for newcomers. Many of them had not been raised in church and needed to learn a lot. At the end of the classes, he decided to hold a pot luck dinner to help the group bond.

    He couldn't host all of them at once, so 15 people were invited to his apartment for the first dinner. Fifteen young adults all showed up with a bag of chips. He had to order out pizza to feed them.

    Betty knew one of the young women better than the others and that she had been raised in church, so she asked, "Chips, really? Haven't you ever been to a pot luck at your church?"

    "Sure," the young woman replied, "but the adults made all of the food."

    Ten years or so down the line from that first class, the church still hosts dinners at the end of the membership classes but the church ladies (my friend Betty and other women in their 50s, 60s, and 70s) prepare all the food.

    So the question now is....what happens to a millennial church when all of the church ladies retire or pass away?

    - Thanks to Kathy Kexel for submitting this.

  • A joke which ponders if mushrooms are the meaning of life?***Warning - this one is a real groaner!***

    It was back in the old days and my friend was into this new age wisdom and spirituality and stuff. Well, one day he heard of this special guru who knew the meaning of life in the universe, so my friend drove from Blairstown to the airport in Newark and caught a plane to India.

    When the plane landed in India he took a train. When the train got to the end of its track he got off and rented a jeep. He drove the jeep to the foothills of the mountains and borrowed a donkey. He rode the donkey until the donkey could go no further and then walked up the mountain to the guru's cave. He entered the cave and he told the guru that he had come to find the meaning of life in the universe.

    The guru said that the meaning of life in the universe was mushrooms.

  • milk2I'm sure you've heard the old story referring to optimism and pessimism that is determined by whether you think the glass is half-empty or half-full. Here are the reactions when somebody leaves a half glass of milk next to the keyboard.
